Sponsor a street child

In Kolkata thousands of young children are living under wretched conditions in the streets, railway stations, markets, slums and squatter colonies.

These vulnerable children are exposed to physical, economic or sexual exploitation.

They often do not go to school, do not have a good diet, safe or good health. The children are forced by criminal gangs to steal, drugsdealen, begging or prostitution.

CINI ASHA workers ensure this, first by preparing them for school through a "bridge course", by regular visits to children in school and to their families to monitor progress. The basic objective is to ensure elementary education and create a positive environment for these needy children.

The Sponsor A Street Child programme of the urban unit of CINI, is an opportunity to change the lives of these children.

We need your support to continue this effort and reach out to more children to save them from deprivation and exploitation.Your support will help us sensitise the children about their rights as well as give their parents a reason to hope. Be a part of this endeavour and make a difference.

Target group

Deprived urban children in the age group of 5-16 Years. CINI help approximately 13,000 children per day through projects designed for the education, health, nutrition and care of:

  • abused children;
  • working children;
  • Children from slums;
  • Children of prostitutes.


Objectives

Children belonging to the high-risk group, especially street children with or without parents and children of sex workers may need to be placed in a set up away from their vulnerable environment, preferably in residential schools. Support for this group of children includes school fees, boarding fees, tuition fees, uniforms and necessary educational materials.

The overall objectives are:

  • To mainstream children into formal schools
  • To ensure their continuation and retention in the primary and secondary schools
  • To bring about a perceptible change in the community, mainly among parents / guardian
  • To inculcate a school-going habit among all children
  • To sensitize the community at large on the significance of education

 


How can you help?

Your support to a child for just two years with a one-time donation of Rs .6,000 (US dollar 145, Euro 120, GBP 70) will help us to follow a child's progress in school, provide school fees, uniforms, educational material and motivate parents to keep them in school.

CINI ASHA workers ensure this, first by preparing them for school through a "bridge course", by regular visits to children in school and to their families to monitor progress. The basic objective is to ensure elementary education and create a positive environment for these needy children.


Reporting system

The sponsor for the children would get two reports for each child sponsored.

First Report: This would contain basic information about the child, including his/her family background and need for sponsorship. The first report would be sent along with a recent photograph of the child.

Second Report: This would be a progress report of the child being sponsored, which will be sent after 18 months from the date of sponsorship.
